    How much would it cost to print a figure?

    Hey, I am new here!
    I have a couple of questions.
    How much would it cost to get a 3d printer which could print this figure in a good quality?
    And how much approximately would it cost to print the figure 10 cm long or 20 cm long if I bought a printer?

    depending on the printer the material to print could be anything from a 50 cents on up to a few dollars.
    for the 20cm print start thibnking around $4-500 and a resin based machine.

    For the 10 cm, you'd still be better off with resin - from aquality point of view, so similiar price :-)

    If you want to stick with fdm - then a dual nozzle system for soluble supports would be a good idea.

    For a resin print, a 10cm print could cost between a $1 to $10, depending on how well you hollowed it out well before printing, how thin the walls were, and how much support you used.

    A hollow 20cm print with the same wall thickness would cost about 4 times as much as the 10cm print.

    3D printing will not cost you more. It depends on what you are printing and which material you are using to print.

    The cost will depend on which type of 3D printer you want, what is your requirements and what type of material you want to use.

    You can get a Wanhao D7 for under $500 and it has a build volume of 120x68x200mm.

    Now for a 10cm figure I estimate it will cost $3 including support material, a 20cm figure $15.
